About me

I signed up for a marathon in 2013. I wanted to challenge myself to achieve something I didn’t think I'd ever be capable of. At the time of signing up I didn’t own a pair of trainers. Looking at the distance I was expected to run was a bit of a shock, but I was determined and put in the training. 6 months later, to my amazement, I crossed that finish line. The journey was incredible and I met some amazing and inspiring people so decided to continue.

My biggest achievements

Going from non-runner to marathon in 6 months. If I can do it, anyone can.
